"Roxy Music: BLISTERING early 70's live versions of tunes from the first two Roxy Music albums. Neat to see Eno manipulating Phil Manzanera's "In Every Dreamhome..." guitar solo. A treat for Roxy/Eno fans. Great sound, good video quality. Amazing how boring these guys grew to be in later years -- they had so much energy back then! The very last Roxy track is from an Enoless, Jobson/Weton, version of the band. Not as great as the Eno era, but worthwhile.T-Rex: Unlike the Roxy material which is all live and contains no overdubs, these segments from various appearances on Musikladen combine a live T-Rex take with extra lead guitar and vocal overdubs by Marc Bolan. Also unlike the Roxy material, the T-Rex segments have psychedelic blue screen effects throughout the songs which are kind of neat and appropriate for the time, but also a little distracting. Still, I like the T-Rex songs and the sound quality is excellent. T-Rex weren't really big in the US so its kind of a treat to see and hear something besides "Bang a Gong". Long live glam! This is a very cool, offbeat, DVD."
A must for early Roxy fans

"Since most single artist "MusikLaden" DVDs are so short, two bands which fell into the "glam rock" umbrella of the early '70s have been coupled on this disc. The T.Rex portion of this DVD features mainly songs from the "Electric Warrior" album. The visuals are typical for this TV show at the time - mainly psychedelic colours and shots of the band looming over the group on a chroma-key background. The performance is OK and, although the band are essentially playing live, there are some audio overdubs. The Roxy Music portion of this disc is what makes it a real find. Dating from a performance from late 1972 or early '73, the band is filmed on a set which resembles a music club. The most interesting part of this performance is that it was filmed while Brian Eno was still a part of the band. Five of the six songs are from this performance and the last tune feeatures Eno's replacement, Eddie Jobson (ex-Curved Air) in a 1973/74 performance. All the tracks are solid and the sound quality is very good (remixed for Dolby 5.1). A real highlight is the overdrive guitar solo by Phil Manzanera on "In Every Dream Home a Heartache". This DVD is an essential purchase for fans of early Roxy Music and Brian Eno. "
Fantastic Musical Time Capsule

"This video is well worth your time and money if you are a fan of either T-Rex or Roxy Music. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Marc Bolan and Bryan Ferry were incredibly charismatic frontmen. This DVD is a great showcase of the last years of rock before the corporations totally co-opted it. T-Rex has hard rocking power pop; really love "Jeepster for Your Love". Roxy Music has great music and marvelous silly glitter rock costumes. They really rock. Bryan croons and dances, Phil Manzanera burns it up on his guitar, Eno plays a wild synth, and Andy MacKay is an incredible sax/oboe player."

"A Club/Concert video from Roxy Music's early days. The sound quality is excellent. Video footage is high quality and very well done. Songs include Do The Strand, Editions Of You, In Every Dream Home A Heartache, Remake Remodel, Virginia Plain and All I Want Is You. Reminded me of how much I enjoyed their first US tour."
